SubFanoBass Posted January 7, 2017 Share Posted January 7, 2017 Hi all, I am a pretty big fan of Subarus. My wife and I had a '99 Outback Legacy Coupe, and though it had it's problems (transmission died @ 99k), it was beast n the snow. We live in N.VA, which gets decent snow, and we would take it out and go joy riding when it snowed. Just a beast. So...the '99 died a miserable death and we decided to get another Sub so we could get around in the snow, when needed. Got a '12 Legacy from CarMax and didn't get too much experience in the snow last year but what I got was not impressive. I put it in the back of my mind. We just got some snow today (1/8" so far [a dusting]) and this thing seriously sucks. ANY incline causes the most violent ABS action and it just sucks on turns. The '99 had ABS (all Subs do???) but it took a lot more to get the ABS to kick in and when it did it was much more subtle. The tires on the '12 are whatever CarMax puts on and the tread is fine. IN SUMMARY: this thing really sucks in the snow. Any thoughts? This is not a snow tire area. Just not worth it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
